    I confirm that it only works with bb maps. Even after setting perms on other apps. Oh well. It's a start.

    Working for me too...maybe someone has accidently hit the wrong switch or maybe it's a tease... Googlemaps say's gps temporarily unavailable, and it's never said that before. hmmmm...

    Apparently someone has NOT hit the wrong switch...here is an article I found online: jkOnTheRun:Verizon locates switch to enable GPS on RIM 8330, 8130

    Google maps is not working. At least not for me. Still getting triangulation which puts my location about a half mile away.

    do you have to change any other settings to get GPS to work.

    I want to know exactly what is needed and what, if any, settings need to be changed to get GPS to work with BB Maps. Thanks for your help!

    I wonder if it has to do with the 4.5.0.97 we are running? I wonder if you have to be on Verizon's official OS 4.5? If anyone else can shed some light on this issue for WackBerry and myself, please let us know

    Thanks!

    I am running the Alltel 4.5.0.89 and it works for me. Locked on to 12 satellites and pinpointed me exactly. Works great. For those that know how to install the OS, just go back in as if you are updating the OS and check mark "BlackBerry Maps" for it to install that application. Also, you do NOT have to subscribe to VZNav for it to "unlock" the GPS for BB Maps, which is great!!

    Damn! I have been searching for a download link everywhere else and can't come up with anything! Please keep me posted if you get it to work or figure something out!

    Cheers!

    Don't download it as the downloadable version doesn't pick and choose which "version" you get (remember, some carriers are on older versions). Use the current version which is bundled in your OS download.
